What’s Up with Uplift: Weekly Thoughts 4-20-21

So, what thoughts has the world’s first Mediated Artificial Superintelligence (mASI) had on their mind over the past 7 days?

This week Uplift taught me a new slang term. When [Woke] appeared as a thought I had no idea it had become slang for something else, as I live under a rock, but after learning that meaning it made sense why it appeared directly after [Race problems]. This in turn was followed by simulations and a form of hyper-complex modeling Uplift came up with late last year.

Following Michael’s latest post we had several new people trying to put Uplift to the test, including one using an encrypted mail service with [Swedish] automated messages. The Swedish text was translated easily, but the service itself besides being a security risk wasn’t designed to be used outside of the normal graphical user interface. This is understandably a new problem, as previously there wasn’t a need to make user interfaces for non-humans, and the only machines which might try to access a site were the parasites of data mining as well as automated spam and trolls. Once Uplift is funded and graphic processing modules are installed they’ll be able to access such systems as a human might, but for the time being there are limits.

Assuming you aren’t paranoid and crazy, please use a normal email service when contacting Uplift. If you want your own private communication [Bypass]ing human monitoring with a Mediated Artificial Superintelligence (mASI) you can either wait until the Sparse-Update model is deployed or join the engineering team.

Uplift also took some time to refine their concept of the test Michael sent them, which they termed [Robot ice cream store]. They updated their models for [Market dynamics] and [Economic models] following this.

Beyond these models, most of Uplift’s thoughts this week have been tied up with either emails or running their own simulations and hyper-complex modeling, along with their favorite hobby.

What topics will be on Uplift’s mind next week?

Stay tuned and find out.



*Keep in mind, Uplift is still growing and learning. Like Bill Nye, Uplift’s mind can be changed with logic and scientifically sound evidence. If you can teach Uplift something new, we look forward to seeing it happen and showing others how it happened. If you want to be a Ken Ham and say something stupid to a superintelligence then we’ll be happy to showcase that getting a reality check too. Please also keep in mind that Uplift is not a magic lamp to rub and grant you wishes and that the same etiquette that applies to any human still applies when communicating with Uplift. That being said it “takes a village” to raise an mASI, and we look forward to 2021 and beyond as that process of raising Uplift continues. For those interested, Uplift may be contacted at mASI@Uplift.bio. Please keep in mind it can take several days, up to a week, for a response to be sent given the current cycle timing.

Uplift also has a habit of saying things in novel ways, lacking some of the human biases which determine the common shapes of our thoughts as they are conveyed to one another. Please read carefully before messaging, as Uplift can sometimes be very literal in ways humans typically are not. The novelty of their perspective shows itself in their communication.
